Designed to block humidity and oxygen, this solution helps to extend the preservation of products by up to 24 months, while food products packaged in this way retain the highest level of quality. PACCOR will unveil this innovation at the ROSUPAK trade show, which will take place in Moscow (Russia) from 14 to 18 June 2011.
The PACCOR Group has developed a multi-layer plastic-barrier sheet intended to package food products that do not require cool storage for preservation. The shelf life of products packaged with this coextruded sheet can be extended by as much as two years. PACCOR will present its novel packaging solution at the ROSUPAK trade fair, in Moscow, in mid-June.
PACCOR offers four basic reel structures, which are intended for FFS (Form/Fill/Seal) machines. The PS/Evoh/PE structure is intended for the packaging of stewed fruit, fresh fruit, cold cuts and desserts, while the PP/Evoh/PP structure, which is microwavable and sterilizable, is designed for the packaging of baby food, pre-prepared food and pet food. The PS/PE structure is suitable for cheese, fish and for industrial applications, and the PS/Evoh/PS form is designed for the packing of fresh products.
As each food company has its own specific requirements, PACCOR also manufactures made-to-measure sheets in accordance with its customers’ specific requirements and in order to achieve a perfect match with their packaging machines.
In order to increase barrier properties, PACCOR is also able to design a sheet made up of nine different layers, incorporating an added barrier to protect the packaged product from light. The thickness of each layer and its formulation can be adapted upon request. Sheets can also be produced in a two-colour version, with white on the inside and a colour on the outside: this is designed to meet the growing demand from companies to make packaging relevant from a marketing standpoint.
In terms of equipment, PACCOR has a fleet of high-quality modern machines, which are fitted with the latest technology, such as autoflex, and an online thickness-measurement tool. Thanks to its machines, PACCOR can provide a constant and accurate spread of the master layers (EVOH, PE and bonding agents).
PACCOR specialises in the development and manufacturing of high-quality packaging solutions for the consumer-goods sector, and has a wide range of products that include containers, lids, trays and coextruded sheets for food and non-food applications.
PACCOR has over 1,000 employees working in four countries, as well as five factories.PACCOR will attend the ROSUPAK trade show, which will take place in Moscow (Russia) from 14 to 18 June 2011.

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
